Room was a good size, clean tidy and staff were friendly, parking was easy.
The breakfast was okay. Not a major but only two towels in the room for two adults.
We used a small packet of plunger coffee and then discovered we had to pay for it - really!

This was a good place to stay location wise out near the gardens just off the SH1. Very clean and tidy, nice rooms, breakfast was good. The only downside was we found it very noisy. Not from traffic but from other guests. Noise seemed to travel into the room from the corridor which woke us. It may have just been our room was bad. Other than that was a good place to stay. We are Accor members so this was our complimentary night - so can't comment on Value.

The motel is in an excellent location, easy to find as one drives south into Dunedin, with plenty of parking. Spent 10 days at there, and found the rooms spaceous, and the service excellent. However, I did find the lack of Sky channels on the tv to be somewhat disconcerting. Good dining at night, but we consider the cooked breakfast to be rather expensive for what was provided.There is a booking anomaly that a traveler needs to be aware of: It seems that Mercure doesn't own the motel - it merely has naming rights. The motel has a policy of allocating bookings to different booking organisations, with no flexibility if one organisation has used their allocation. This causes problems when trying to book online and you find that on one (the Mercure) website rooms are not available, whilst on another website rooms are available. The attitude of the management was that if rooms were not available online then I should have rung the motel direct to enquire if rooms were available. I thought that that was the purpose of looking up a website!

Room Tip: There is no lift so if you cannot negotiate stairs ask for a ground floor room.

We have stayed in this hotel a few times, and love returning here. It is an oasis of calm in a great setting of gardens. Easy to find, plenty of parking, handy to the Botanic Gardens, which make for a pleasant walk. Rooms spacious and clean. Friendly, helpful staff. Will keep returning here whenever we have a need to be in Dunedin.
